divided government. what is the difference between what president obama is doing now with all the executive orders and declarations and president bush and the signing orders that were so controversial? >> well, again, there are certainly circumstances when previous presidents have exceeded their authority under the law. and it is the responsibility of congress, in not a partisan way, but a bipartisan way to put a check on that. and the hearings we heard today are a part of that. >> is there something you can do about it? >> it is about sun light, about cutting off funds. it is about lawsuits, changing the law so that members of congress and the congress itself can have standing to challenge abuse of authority in the courts. there are a number of steps that the congress can and should take. but it only works well if the congress in both parties recognize that this is a challenge to one of our great principles of our democracy, separation of powers. and they have to join together in a bipartisan way in order to be effective. and the american people need to speak out about it, to
